Myofacial Decompresssion is treatment modality that uses a vacuum on the skin to create a suction, creating a decompression/negative pressure to biological tissue.
Cupping is an ancient Chinese therapy in which a cup is applied to the skin and the pressure in the cup is reduced (either by heat or suction) in order to draw and hold skin and superficial muscle inside the cup. Sometimes, while the suction is active, the cup is moved, causing the skin and muscle to be pulled.
Cupping is applied to certain acupuncture points as well as to parts of the body that have been affected by pain, due to the ease with which it can be performed to the back.
From a scientific standpoint, cupping is known to help activate the lymphatic system, promote blood circulation and therefore good for deep tissue repair.
